I have a rock chip in the front, the dealer did something to touch it up and they screwed things up. They're offering a complimentary repaint of the front, driver's-side part of the bumper. Is breaking the paint that bad or should I take them up on the offer?

If they are offering to repaint it for free, I don't see why you wouldn't take them up on it.

Based on what you are describing, I would say it sounds more like the bumper was compressed, by hitting something or being hit at a low speed.

No, the bumper is in perfect condition, it's just an issue with paint. I heard that breaking the paint can make the car's paint chip faster and easier a few years from now.

Not if it's properly prepped before painting, but any bodyshop worth the money would know this...
